PF Chang’s, the US-based casual dining restaurant chain, has expanded its international footprint by inaugurating its first restaurant in Bangalore, India.
The restaurant chain has intentions to further establish itself in India later this year, with plans to open additional branches in various Indian cities, including Mumbai.
PF Chang’s global brands and retail president Kristen Briede said, “We’re thrilled to welcome India as the next country in our network of global locations.
“It couldn’t be a better time to invest in our growth and share the PF Chang’s experience with even more guests.”
In partnership with its franchisee partners, Gourmet Investments Private Limited (GIPL) and HMSHost, PF Chang’s aims to provide a wider array of culinary choices to both local residents and travelers in India.
The brand’s first location made its debut at Terminal 2 of Bangalore International Airport, delivering a “premier” dining experience to travelers.
In the upcoming months, the restaurant brand has plans to inaugurate a fresh bistro location, which will be operated by GIPL. Looking ahead, GIPL is strategizing to introduce new locations in Delhi-NCR in 2024.
PF Chang’s business development senior director Rafik Farouk said, “As we continue to scale our international business and growth in new markets, we look forward to establishing long-term partnerships with new franchisees and are committed to providing ongoing guidance and support.”
In April of this year, PF Chang’s unveiled its latest bistro in New Braunfels, Texas, USA.
The full-service bistro is situated at 2982 Cold Springs Drive in New Braunfels, making it the third PF Chang’s location in the Greater San Antonio, Texas area.
